Jonathan Kreisberg brings a wealth of experience and abilities to his new position. During his many years of service with the Agency, Jonathan’s excellent legal and organizational skills have resulted in the amicable resolution of many labor disputes and meaningful remedies for employees, unions and employers under the NLRA. We are confident that his considerable experience with the Agency and his active involvement with the labor-management community in Connecticut will enable him to continue the tradition of excellence in the Hartford Regional Office.

A native of Bayside, Queens, New York, Mr. Kreisberg earned his B.S. degree in 1974 from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and his J.D. degree in 1977 from American University’s Washington College of Law.
